    Default mary morrissey

    I am trying to trace the background my great grand mother Mary Morrissey who was born in County Loise.
    A birth certificate for her second son shows her being born in Stradbally in 1864, but there seems to be some
    doubt of that.
    Thanks

    hi
    on rootsireland pay to view but search for free website
    the last 2 1868 are likely the same girl her birth and baptism

    Church Baptism Morrisy Mary 1863 Co. Laois
    Civil Birth Morrasy Mary 1866 Co. Laois
    Civil Birth Morrisey Mary 1868 Co. Laois
    Church Baptism Morrissy Mary 1868 Co. Laois

    do you have her fathers name from her marriage cert ?
    i dont know of any free records online
    was she literate ? her surname could be spelt several ways if not

    Thanks for that. The birth certificate of her second son born in Brisbane Australia is dated 20/9/1887. Her marriage date is shown
    as12/2/1885 in Brisbane, and her age is shown as 23. Since the informant of the birth was her husband, one would assume he
    knew he knew his wifes true age. On the basis of that evidence The Mary Morrisy of 1863 would have to be her. I will have to see
    her marriage certificate .
    Regards

    Statutory birth registration only began in Ireland in 1864 so for births before that, such as the 1863, the church record will be the only record you'll find. Not all parish records in Ireland are on-line, and some have been lost, so there could be other Morrisy births that are not on any pay to view site. That's why it's very helpful to find corroboration of her place of birth from some other source if you can.
